Joy, pain, sadness, hope – the stories still get told. Submitted ‘Planet Ugh’ to Clarkesworld today. This is a >2000-word short, in the style of ‘They’re Made Out of Meat’ by Terry Bisson. I started writing it after reading one-too-many racist comments on an online news article. One wonders what a sentient alien race would think of us after half an hour on the Internet.
Anyway – hope Clarkesworld likes it. I look forward to sharing it with you when it gets published.
